T-J surgery for Mike Hampton

Mike Hampton, now legendary as one of the worst free agent signings in major league history (possibly even worse than the Ho), as apparently facing Tommy John surgery.

If he goes under the knife, Hampton would likely be out until 2007. And according to Hardball Dollars, next season is when the Braves no longer have Hampton's contract subsidized by the Rockies and Marlins...they'll owe Hampton $49 million over the next three seasons (plus the 2009 option buyout), and then, if I'm reading this right, will be on the hook for another $10 million or so in deferred payments...
